I miss being able to RP. I've muse for my current character, and then there's two others I've been dying to make. *Sad face.* Oct 13, 2012

- Favourite Genre:
- Rather like my own quirky interests in real life, my choices of what genres I look out for when I am searching for a role-playing site to join reflect. They are typically Anime/Manga, canon Cartoon/Disney, Fairy Tale/Fantasy, Historical, and Literature. I have dabbled here and there with the Gothic/Horror genre, but due to the particular character I have specifically created in mind for such role-plays, a child werewolf, my choices have been rather limited.
- Roleplay Experience:
I have been "role-playing" my whole life, in that I have always been creating my own characters, worlds, plots – whatever. If I became particularly attatched to some book, film, television show, and/or video game, I would think up the aforementioned things in line with those "fandoms." None of my ideas took actual play-by-post form until the summer of 2004.
When I was initally introduced, it was on an anime and manga discussion board that I was running with my twin sister. There was a forum within another staff member my sister had recruited made specifically for role-playing. Everyone involved was writing posts in Chat Box form, so I assumed that was how it was done. Upon joining an actual massively multi-player online play-by-post role-play for the first time, I quickly came to discover that I disliked my then current writing style. I felt it was like that of some inexperienced child. As such, I converted to typing in third-person, past-tense, and with proper spelling and grammar. Basically, I began thinking of anything and everything I wrote as if they were important schoolpapers.
As is typically the case with most play-by-post role-players, my first true character applications and posts were simply horrid. I gradually improved over time, however. I am now at a place where I generally feel pleased with my writing. Due to amounting health problems that I have been battling since 2005, the amount of sites, characters, and threads I can take on has greatly diminished. Nowadays, I do not join any more than one – maybe two – sites at a time. I play only a single character on each. If I feel that I am becoming overwhelmed by threads, I will politely say so. This system is not always successful, but I feel it is the best I can do.
- Staffing Experience:
I was a Global Moderator on two canon Disney role-plays several years ago, but the first of them went inactive and the second, I voluntarily stepped down from and left because of personal discomfort with the way it was being run.
Due to the health issues I have mentioned in the Role-Playing Experience section of this profile and general disinterest, I have made a voluntary commitment to never staff again. Even if I am offered a position, whether that be as an Administrator, a Moderator – whatever – I will politely decline. I am content with simply being an ordinary Member.
- How did you get into roleplay?:
- I have been into creating my own characters, worlds, plots, and what have you my whole life. It all took to actual writing, both on paper and on the computer, in my Freshman year of high school. My older brother, the "control freak" that he is, had begun refusing our sisters and I access to any of our video game consoles. I am admittedly quite the introvert, so I had to find some other way to entertain myself. Play-by-post role-playing eventually became that "gateway" of sorts, and I have been doing it ever since!
- How did you find RPG-D?:
- I found RPG-Directory through an affiliate button on a site I once played at, I believe.
- Sopranista has not made any blog entries yet.
